One of the trails at Mt Charleston. Definitely a moderate hike up hill. The path is very visible. You can't get lost. Can be very slippery in places. A few areas with shade to stop and rest if needed. Weekends are bus, but it is well worth it to see the waterfall at the end. Great trail.

First trail out in this area and it is beautiful. The temperature drop from the valley was welcome. This would be on the easy side of moderate, there are a few steep places, the switchbacks toward the top keep things interesting. The view, the caves, and the falls are worth the climb.

The trail is beautiful, but it was packed with people. On top of the mass amounts of people, there were a lot of dogs! People weren't courteous and there was a lot of poop on the trail... or poop bags people threw to the side. It's a pretty steep climb, but worth it to see the water at the end!

This is a great and pretty easy hike! If you are not used to the elevation gain, it may get you, but the overall length isn't too long. As of today, Aug. 19, there is still a trickle of water at the falls--just enough to stand under for a very refreshing cool down. Great view of Kyle Canyon from the top and some cool caves. Go on a weekday because it gets crowded on weekends and there were too many poorly patented children to really enjoy the water for long. Overall would definitely do it again.

Good easy hike shouldn't be too difficult for first time hikers. Still make sure u have shoes with good grip and enjoy the views and drink plenty of water have fun and good luck :)

Definitely not a moderate difficulty if you are new to hiking! It was beautiful but the incline and elevation get to you really quickly. Didn't even make it up to the falls, got half way and was so winding we had to turn back. Will definitely be returning after some more practice!
